There was an outstanding pitching performance at Yellowjacket Stadium/Carlisle Field Tuesday night.
Unfortunately for the home team Starkville, it was not in the form of one of its own hurlers.
Instead, it was Columbusâ€™ Hunter Mullis, who had a six-inning no-hitter with 13 strikeouts.
Add in strong batting and in the end, the Falcons left town with a 13-0 victory.
â€śThat is as good a pitching performance as I have seen in years,â€ť Starkville coach Travis Garner said. â€śHe hit the mitt with three pitches. He was mixing it up. He didnâ€™t get in a rhythm. Just overall, he was very, very good.
â€śWe didnâ€™t play well, but we have to understand that it is one game. They donâ€™t get to carry any of the runs over to Friday and we have to come out ready for the next game.â€ť
